  • Today I pulled out a favorite book and found a bookmark with a saying that now has completely different meaning than it did previously.

There are times when life circumstances change your perspective and words,  phrases, and experiences take on new meaning.  Living life, as compared to just shuffling through it, means that we will all have successes and challenges, positives and negatives, loves and loss.

Some say that how you respond in the moment to circumstance defines you.  I disagree. We are human and always evolving. Sometimes we'll be comfortable with our response, other times wish for a "do over." Allowing yourself to be defined by a response to circumstance leads to a stagnant life...you cease to live.  And those who define you by your response alone have a closed mind.

LEARN, EVOLVE, LIVE...you'll be a better human.

The saying.  Advice from the Sky

Expand your horizons
Breathe deep
Stay open
Create a pleasant atmosphere
Don't cloud up your thoughts
Cherish clean air
Keep looking up! ......Ilan Shamir

  • What a difference a day makes.  We've all heard this saying and in our own way experienced it.
But have you been a passive or an active participant is the question.  Or positioned another way, Do you control your destiny or allow others to lay out your life path?
Either way the choice is yours.  This means you can change it...you are in control.

Early in my adult life I made the decisions related to my path.  Then at some point I listened to the voices of the traditional path and suppressed my own.  At the time it felt right, like the thing to do.  But the voice and path of "me" never died.

Recently that voice spoke out loud and clear and let me tell you it was an amazing conversation.  An energy, yet calming presence returned.  It was familiar, welcomed, yet different.  Many of you know what I'm speaking of.

The "me" persona now needed to balance my acquired responsibilities with the internal drive to "experience" life on my terms.  A return to living life not passively allowing it to control me.

This photo series is an example.

After family time on Christmas day I jumped in my Jeep and headed to the Rocky Mountains.
What a difference a day makes.

1st night in Iowa and the World's largest truck stop
2nd day hiking in Medicine Bow National Forest (Wyoming)
3rd day hiking to 12,230 ft in Rocky Mountain National Park 
4th day mountain biking in Golden, Colorado.

Each day brought about new and enjoyable experiences, new people and an injection of new life energy...all while balancing the current responsibilities of my life.

Regardless of your point in life remember that how you balance life is your choice.

How are you living your life and each day to day?  On your terms, or another's?

  • "Senza andare fuori si possono conoscere le vie del mondo perché quando si conosce se stessi attraverso la pratica della coltivazione interiore si scopre qualcosa di molto più eccitante rispetto a ciò che si trova all’esterno perché si è nel cuore di se stessi.
La vita è la via che riporta a se stessi. Molti guardano verso l’esterno cercando l’amore, la ricchezza, perché non la trovano in se stessi. La scoperta di se stessi attraverso il Qi Gong significa tornare a casa e questo sarà il centro, ovunque sia il centro in voi”. (Jeffrey Yuen, Monaco Taoista)

  • Ritorno a parlare di modelli cui mi ispiro. Uno tra questi è lei, Franca Viola, prima donna a rifiutare il matrimonio riparatore dopo aver subito un abuso da un uomo che la perseguitava. La sua rinuncia ha cambiato il destino di molte donne. 
Rinunciare non è una sconfitta, non è una disubbidienza o un peccato capitale, ma un gesto eroico e di amor proprio. Allora, di nuovo faccio appello a tutte le donne di lasciarsi incuriosire da queste eroine, di scegliere con cura i propri modelli, veri e autentici, no quelli finti e sfornati dall'industria del marketing. Di sperimentare il connubio di raziocinio e sensibilità al fine di smentire le cattive maschere sociali e aprirsi alla libertà. Ognuno di noi ha un sogno nel cassetto, il mio è quello di essere LIBERA.

  • Дымом скованный город М,
Затихает в тумане грязи.
Он забытый, и глух, и нем,
В нем лишь шепот опасных связей.
Кровь из ушей.

Ночь запрятала город А
В фонарей тускло белом свете.
Он сгорел сотню лет назад,
От него здесь остался пепел.
Воздух серый.

Днём пустеет зловонный R, 
Ночью закрыты людские норы.
Город полон тоски и пьян.
Ртуть в подслушанных разговорах
Травит.

Непригодна еда и сон 
В сутки два, три часа и меньше.
В город S движется циклон.
Он убьет всех. И станет легче?..
